What is so bad about downtown?

37 replies 328 views Edited Jan 8, 2014

How come every time the map comes up literally everyone on the lobby votes for the other map and I've seen some people on here say they don't like it. I've only played it a few times but its not that bad. Why all the hate?

Not hate it's not a good map for hand to hand combat . Shiving, melee . Except for a few spots that are flat surfaced . Also a bit too dark, aesthetically good though . Also a good map for sniping and I'm not a sniper.

I don't like it because you can't jump through the windows in the upstairs levels of the buildings. If you wanna leave, you have to go back down the stairs. Other than that, it's not bad at all.

because you need to climb over every single piece of rubble to get anywhere. it gets annoying when you're running from the whole team

Some players fear the dark, and hate to be sniped by a great sniper.

Don't listen to these cry babies. Its the best map. All functions work totally fine. I have no problems walking, running, climbing, shooting or shivving on this map. These guys are just scared of the dark.

Hey scaredy cats... its OK to not get a 2+ kdr on every map you play. Take your lumps and move on. But don't be scared when downtown comes up in voting. Don't be afraid of the dark lol

Absolutely nothing is wrong with this map.

It's just different from the other map. People are scared to play out of their comfort zone, so they choose to ignore it.

It's the Ugly Duckling of maps. Nothing wrong with it, but people hate it because of its looks.

Actually the map is not bad i think bills town is way more a bad map, downtown is ok and a nice map for snipers.

sorry if my English is not good, I am no native speaker, +the auto.correction doesn't work in this forum o0

Downtown is a bit of a tricky map, with the elevation constantly shifting as you move throughout it and the darkness. It definitely promotes a more stealthy approach that I think scares a lot of people off.

 

It's probably my least favorite map on supply raid and survivors but my favorite (next to hometown) for interrogation. IMO the best part of the map (and all maps) are the old broken down houses in the back, the spawns. So much fun to attack and defend boxes in those areas, fantastic map design back there that rarely gets used on the other gamemodes which is a shame.
